So tonight I made braised fish tacos. I took a recipe that stated "this is the only viable use for tilapia!" and started modding from there. ;) Ended up braised in beer, garlic and spices, served on whole wheat tortillas with shredded cabbage and a sauce made of fat-free sour cream, diced chipotles in adobo, lime and cilantro. Fairly cheap and very healthy.

Then we found out, also ZOMG FILLING. I had to skip lunch today due to last-minute staff meetings, so when I got home I was ravenous and ate a few crackers with cheese. After these tacos were done I managed to eat one and am now bursting. James barely managed two despite being similarly starving.

So the final count is: very healthy, fairly cheap, very easy to make, and INCREDIBLY filling (which makes me think I'll make slightly less next time, which bumps the cheap rating up even more). I call this a win! And now I'm going to lie around and groan and let the cats sniff my breath jealously.
